Academic Journal
The article presents information on a study which tries to obtain a substantial transcriptome dataset for common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). It used parallel pyrosequencing to obtain 1,692,972 reads with an average read length of 207 nucleotides which were assembled into 59,295 unigenes. It is said that this dataset can be used for research in functional genomics in common bean and related legumes. It is said that it can also help in developing molecular markers for tagging genes.

    Polymorphism of microsatellite markers is often associated with the simple sequence repeat motif targeted. AT-rich microsatellites tend to be highly variable and this appears to be notable, especially in legume genomes. To analyze the value of AT-rich microsatellites for common bean ( Phaseolus...

    Background: Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean) is the second most important legume crop in the world after soybean. Consequently, yield losses due to fungal infection, like Uromyces appendiculatus (bean rust), have strong consequences. Several resistant genes were identified that confer resistance...
